Personal profile

Research Interests

I am interested in understanding the informed consent process around genetic research and predictive genomic testing. Additionally, I am interested in how patients and physicians choose to use information from predictive testing to manage their health. Furthermore, I am interested in understanding what the general patient population understands about genomic testing, genetic/genomic research, and personalized genomic medicine as well as the best way this information can be communicated.
